SquareMeal Review of The Harrow at Little Bedwyn

Gold Award

Despite its bucolic name, The Harrow is not some timeless local pub, but a full-blown country restaurant in a secluded village on the Kennet and Avon Canal. It’s quiet Wiltshire location makes for a great foodie getaway and there are plenty of places to stay in the surrounding area, ranging from quirky B&Bs to sleek five-star hotels.  

Open for almost 20 years, The Harrow has retained its Michelin star since 2006 and continues to pull in the crowds. The unstuffy dining room is flooded with plenty of natural light thanks to large windows, while muted modern shades, high-backed leather chairs and crisp white linen secure The Harrow’s status as a restaurant with both style and substance.

Chef-patron Roger Jones oversees a menu of accomplished modern cooking, which is driven by high-quality seasonal ingredients, with day-boat catches from British waters showing up strongly. The Harrow offers a choice of three menus to their guests – an eight-course gourmet set menu, a set six-course tasting menu and a five-course lunch menu, with both vegetarian and vegan alternatives available.

The menus at The Harrow are subject to daily changes as the restaurant uses only the best seasonal ingredients which are delivered to the kitchen team each morning, but courses may include dishes such as carpaccio of Welsh black beef with mango chutney, pistachio and chilli, or free-range chicken and foie gras ravioli with truffles and ceps.

Sweeter dishes meanwhile may see a dish of chocolate and cherry, or perhaps rice pudding with rhubarb and ginger ice cream. For the savoury-toothed, there is a selection of British cheese available.  

The Harrow’s other stand out selling point is its 900 bin wine list, which is an oenophile’s delight, featuring bottles from serious growers very fair prices, from locations such as Australia, South African and New Zealand.

I like Modern British Cooking especially when delivered with a flair and elegance which out-classes the snobbishly French fashion of over-stylised cuisine that perhaps a few too many Brits have adopted in the past. Even better when it is served within the walls of an under-stated country establishment, where you can relax in the company of good friends. We ate carefully spiced and precisely balanced ingredients which had been confidently put together to correlate agreeably. Beetroot amuse bouche had just sufficient spicy heat and cumin fragrance to complement the sweet beet’ puree, which stood up to the topping of smoked eel cream that actually resembled the texture of pate. Breads were perfectly soft and warm. Who would have thought of putting lobster with dahl – I am so glad they did. A risotto had a dense rich woodiness from chestnuts and English, yes English, truffle with a piquancy coming from the cheese. Scallops, my sister-in-law told us, were cooked to perfection and arranged within a neatly colourful pea and chorizo surround. I tried to quell excitement in anticipation of the main event. Delicately steamed turbot sat above chicken and vegetable broth, which only just failed to eclipse the outstanding performance by the Pembrokeshire lobster and spiced creamy lentils. Venison was a triumph cooked exactly to order that brought satisfying smiles to those dining at our table. A pre-dessert was a sensational take on boiled egg with soldiers. I won’t give the game away completely….but it is worth ordering dessert just for this. If you like silky textures and mango, you will love this. Dessert was of course, impeccably produced, and like everything else was assembled to a clean, modern and modest style, where the palate gets the best deal. At the risk of almost never finishing this comment, comfort, atmosphere, service, and wine are quite deserving of mention, but it is obvious where the emphasis is, and should be. Unspeakably good! Need I say, the sort of food that makes me enthuse all the way home. Now for the real test : can they maintain this standard? I, for one, intend to find out.

You can tell there’s enormous passion in this restaurant through the constantly changing roster of special menus, the lovingly put-together wine list and the way the staff, particularly Sue (wife of chef Roger Jones), explain every aspect of the menu – from starters to cheese. Well-crafted menus are a celebration of flavour and good (not fanciful) technique. Understated, but in every respect a foodie's haven.
